Tough Times Never Last, Tough Farm Families Do!

Andy Junkin is a seventh-generation farmer and expert in the field of farm decision science and business management. He has been featured in Successful Farming magazine and on the Successful Farming podcast.

His new book, Tough Times Never Last; Tough Farm Families Do, aims to change the decision-making culture of farmers so they can “bulletproof” their farms and families against tough times, both now and in the future.

The first half of the book is about a 90-minute read and outlines Junkin’s recommendations. “This book is about setting tough goals, making tough decisions with your family, and being tough on yourself to understand what you must change,” Junkin says.

The book’s second half is a 90-day planner that includes weekly meeting agendas, daily to-do lists, and goal-setting plans. “In 90 minutes and 90 days, this will change your life!” he says.

Go to or to order Junkin’s book, which is available for $20, or place an order by calling 800/474-2057. Or you can listen to the audio version of the book for free here.
